Orca's Addiction

Orca mag
Orca proved once again that her own addiction to her image and perceived power is one that will never be satisfied. In a very public display of victimhood, Orca decided to humiliate and shame former drug addict, James Frey over exaggerations in his book, "A Million Little Pieces". Orca, who had endorsed the book in her book club, felt that she had been duped and that her precious image had been tarnished when it was proven that several parts of Frey's book had been stretched. Frey, to his credit, faced the snarling bite of Orca's wrath with humility and eloquence. He took his whipping and remained standing. In the after show comments from the audience, several people stood up in his defense and claimed that despite the inaccuracies, his book had helped them overcome their addictions. Orca, unmoved, looked for her own supporters to come to her side and commiserate with her in her unbearable grief. Who cares that the book has had a positive affect on people with addictions, the main issue here is the impeccable image and honesty of Orca right?

The fact that Frey made up some stuff in his book is sad and was whole-heartedly wrong. He could have avoided this whole thing by simply putting in some form of disclaimer such as, "based on a true story", or something like that. However, he is not the first, nor will he be the last writer to embellish and play loose with facts. What irritates me is the hypocrisy of Orca, and her incessant need to feed her own ego. This error in judgment on the part of Frey wasn't about Orca, it was more about his demons and could have been handled quietly, without the need for a huge public flogging. Her need to make this about her is further proof that she actually believes the tripe that her yes people tell her every day, and that the over-produced, over-Photoshopped images of her on her magazine, are real. Message to Orca: Get over yourself! You're not any better than anyone else! In fact, where was the similar outrage when super ditz, Cameron Diaz loudly proclaimed on Orca's show that if women didn't get out and vote for John Kerry, that rape would be legalized? Or where was Orca's public apology after she tearfully lambasted federal authorities for allowing thousands of children to suffer in the Katrina flood, when later it was proven that her story was largely wrong? The answer is nowhere. When you're addicted to your own ego and image, you manipulate circumstances to fit your addiction needs not necessarily on fairness and truth. Orca, get some help.

"Gorebal" Warming Meltdown!

gore melt
Former V.P. Al "Put me in Coach" Gore, again sought the limelight today by publicly melting down and blasting the Bush administration with an undisciplined, lengthy, "sky is falling" rant in honor of MLK day. In his speech, unfortunately attended and somewhat endorsed, by former congressman Bob Barr, Gore attempted to incite the citizenry to revolution and to fear all forms of communication due to, in his view, an overzealous, power-mad administration which has thrown innocent people into prison, and denied them rights after secretly evesdropping on their innocent private phone calls and emails. Also, according to Gore, the Bush administration is personally responsible for the unlawful capture, torture and death of hundreds of innocent people throughout the world in their unjustified grab for power couched in the fabric of fighting terrorism.

Gore stated today, "The President claims that he can imprison American citizens indefinitely for the rest of their lives without an arrest warrant, without notifying them about what charges have been filed against them, and without informing their families that they have been imprisoned.

At the same time, the Executive Branch has claimed a previously unrecognized authority to mistreat prisoners in its custody in ways that plainly constitute torture in a pattern that has now been documented in U.S. facilities located in several countries around the world.

Over 100 of these captives have reportedly died while being tortured by Executive Branch interrogators and many more have been broken and humiliated. In the notorious Abu Ghraib prison, investigators who documented the pattern of torture estimated that more than 90 percent of the victims were innocent of any charges."

Unbelievable. "Executive branch interrogators", "authority to mistreat prisoners", "imprison American citizens indefinitely"? What a load of crap!

To listen to Gore's speech, first you'd have to be jacked up on caffeine or something to be able to endure it without passing out, but he would have you believing that Bush is the white-Anglo version of Kim Jong il; a tyrant, who seeks only to yield unchecked power in an insatiable thirst to control the world! Gore put it this way,

"This effort to rework America's carefully balanced constitutional design into a lopsided structure dominated by an all powerful Executive Branch with a subservient Congress and judiciary is-ironically-accompanied by an effort by the same administration to rework America's foreign policy from one that is based primarily on U.S. moral authority into one that is based on a misguided and self-defeating effort to establish dominance in the world. The common denominator seems to be based on an instinct to intimidate and control".

Do you really think he believes that the Clinton administration, of which he was the number three man (behind Hillary), had any moral authority? Guess again Al.

I personally thank God every day that this crazy man, or his subsequent Bush challenger, John Kerry, were never elected. Our country would be on a much different and more perilous track. Al would have mandated that schools issue sun block to counteract the terrorism of the sun's rays and global warming, while Kerry would have raised taxes to pay for more abortion clinics and fund needle programs for the degenerates in an effort to satisfy his guilty conscience for unearned wealth. Both would have probably fought terrorism by mandating sensitivity training so that we could understand the unfortunate reasons for terrorist's anger. Both men are pathetic and should be an embarrassment to their losercrat party. But rather, they are celebrated as espousing the heart and soul of the party. This is why the Demoncrats are done as to their prospects of regaining power. Us flyover simpletons aint that simple, we can see through the BS. To use popular folksy jargon, "That dog won't hunt"!

I am glad that the president is willing to go out on a limb to keep us safe. The feds can listen to any of my calls anytime. Since most of them seem to be freekin' solicitors, I'm sure they would get bored very soon and hang up. However, if I was communicating with Al-keida types in Syria, I might want to hide that from the feds. In fact I would love for agents to be delayed in their search for me so that I can switch cell phones or email addresses. Al conveniently forgot that every modern President starting with Carter has used the same provision when necessary. In fact, Al and his buddy Bill went even further by allowing agents to search and seize property without FISA. But when you're a demoncrat, like Al Gore, you can't let facts get in the way of good propaganda.

I assume Al is revving up for another try at the presidency he was so unfairly denied in 2000. He's like a little spoiled, bratty kid who keeps whining, "My dad said I could be president, now let me, or else!" Good luck with that Al.

To his credit, Al, realizing that he was just blowing smoke admitted that what Bush did was the sensible thing to do given the circumstances. Sure it was a bit gray, but needed. Gore stated,

"Don't misunderstand me: the threat of additional terror strikes is all too real and their concerted efforts to acquire weapons of mass destruction does create a real imperative to exercise the powers of the Executive Branch with swiftness and agility. Moreover, there is in fact an inherent power that is conferred by the Constitution to the President to take unilateral action to protect the nation from a sudden and immediate threat, but it is simply not possible to precisely define in legalistic terms exactly when that power is appropriate and when it is not."

OK Al, then why the spitting and fussing? Oh yeah, you can't get your boring mug on camera anymore, and you're still hoping to fulfill daddy's dream of being president; thus, the public tantrum. I guess it will score points with the hardened lefties who can't see straight from their blind rage over being yesterday’s news.

Maybe someone can convince old al to go do some of his crack scientific research on global warming; maybe down in the Antarctic taking deep core samples or something. Whatever it is, just go away, please.

faces of hate
I think we all owe a great deal of thanks to the brilliant performance of the Demoncrats on the Senate Judicial Committee. Thanks to their unapologetic display of arrogance and rude behavior, they have ensured Republican control of congress and the presidency for at least the next generation. It amazes me to watch these people like Feinstein, Kennedy, and Schumer, etc make fools of themselves. All I can think of is the obvious need for term limit legislation. What good are any of these nasty people doing for this country? As I've stated before, Kennedy should be sitting in a cement cell doing 25 to life, not trying to denigrate a classy and brilliant gentleman like Judge Alito. Why is it that abortion is the sacred Quran of the left? What is it about the snuffing out of innocent life that is so thrilling to these people that they have destroyed their party and would weaken our country by hoping for an inferior court, to protect it? These morons should be really mad at Al Gore for inventing the Internet, because no longer can they lie and cheat without getting caught. Joe "Let's talk about me" Biden should know this by now after getting caught ripping Princeton yesterday after praising Princeton less than 2 years ago. Duhh. Maybe these simpletons should be told about this little thing called Google. Anyway, the good news is that the most effective Republican campaign commercial would be more hearings in which this crew of fascists would continue talking.

Welcome 2006!

Did you miss me? Nice job turning nothing into something! You guys are hilarious! Bob, that was a great story about our friend Jeff the lefty super skier. I'm sure he must cringe a little bit when he plops down his $60.00 for an opportunity to ski over hibernating creatures and contributing to the evils of capitalistic exploitation of Mother Nature while participating in a lifestyle of opulence and consumerism. Sounds like a conservative Republican to me! And all this time he's been pretending to be a member of the dark side.

Actually gang, I'm sure we probably have more in common than not. My brothers and I try to make an annual trek west to ski at least once a year. We've been doing this since high school. Steamboat is my favorite, although it's turned into another giant ski town over the years, it's still awesome. I also like to Nordic ski - a true domain of the hardcore left. My Suburban with a "Bush is Right" bumper sticker tends to stick out among the pathetic Kerry Edwards sticker clad Subaru’s. I intentionally park in the back, away from the over medicated, sensitive, loving and inclusive lefties for fear that they will put a pole tip through my door panel.

Anyway, it's good to be back. This will be a great year. We're about to witness the lefties in the senate go into another fit of hysterics over the Alito confirmation hearings. They will make fools of themselves, but won't know it because they are completely out of touch with reality. They will throw out their new catch phrase, "culture of corruption", and they'll try to make it stick through the next election cycle. Unfortunately for them, they will be preaching only to their choir of like-minded fanatics who will cheer them on into further dementia. They will be shellacked again. And please, let's hope Al "not funny" Franken decides to run for Senate in Minnesota against Norm Coleman. It'll be fun to see him get destroyed.

So happy 2006! It's all good.
